Audiovisuel Extérieur de la France, the commission consisting of Monte Carlo Doualiya, France 24 and RFI, has signed a three-year agreement with public broadcasting group Qatar Media Corporation (QMC).

The deal has been formalised by Alain de Pouzilhac, CEO of AEF, Mubarak Jaham Al Kuwari, executive chairman of QMC, and Mohamed Jaham Al Kuwari, Qatar's Ambassador to France. It covers exchanges of content for radio, television and multimedia as well as tri-media training programmes. AEF is now Qatar Media Corporation's key media partner.
The new agreement follows a co-operation deal signed last January in Doha between RFI and QMC at the launch of Oryx FM, the first French-language radio station in a Gulf country.
